Adventures in Curtsyland!

Tuesday, September 30, 2008


I have been in fashion heaven the past few weeks as designers around the world have been showing their Spring/Summer '09 RTW collections in New York, London, Milan and now Paris. I wake up every morning and can't do anything before seeing what collections have been posted online. And every night....I look forward to tv shows that give a glimpse into the world of fashion, whether it be fiction or reality based. And even more, I look forward to when I some small way......connect said shows to Curtsyland. So you can imagine the squeals of joy that kept sneaking out of me last night while watching Gossip Girl. Throughout the episode.....all the PYT of the Upper East Side could be spotted sporting Tarina Tarantino jewels!!!! And a few weeks ago.....on America's Next Top Model.....Tarina herself appeared as a guest designer and guest judge. Elina.....the model who won the challenge also won her own photo shoot for an upcoming TT campaign.

Another show I look forward to every week is Project Runway. Thus....I have been anxiously awaiting the goodies that arrived today. Fashion Angels.....makers of uber cool tween products.....has teamed up with Project Runway to create design kits for the budding fashionista. We received the Fashion Design Sketch Book, in which the designer can create an entire collection on a sketch pad pre-printed with models using the included colored pencils & design guide. Another Project Runway Challenge......Postcard Design from the most fashionable cities in the world.....New York, London, & Paris. Each set includes postcards with pre-printed scenes of each city....the designer gets to design the outfit and send her fabulous fashions off to be seen by the world.

And for the fashionista more drawn to what goes on behind the runway.....the Make-up Artist Sketch Book. I wanted to start playing with this as soon as I laid eyes on it. The set includes a 22 color make-up artist palette, 16 make-up brushes & applicators, 8 colored pencils & sharpener, make-up artist sketch pad, color chart & preview wheel and a full color make-up artist guide. Everything needed to explore the glamorous realm of make-up artistry!
